Here we are (yes, the new gdalwarp thin-plate-spline warping tool is needed):

# warp AVHRR L1B to Erdas/Img - LatLong/WGS84
# <4326> +proj=longlat +ellps=WGS84 +datum=WGS84 +no_defs  <>

# apply GCPs with thin plate spline transformer
gdalwarp -tps -of HFA -t_srs "EPSG:4326" -co COMPRESS=YES $FILE $FILE.img

#Then use in a LatLong/WGS84 location:
r.in.gdal $FILE.img $FILE
